Mark got some fishing in at Shelter Cove this week.
The boat Eric got with his inheritance from my parents is a real gem. Mark really enjoyed going out with them, even if he did get seasick. I stayed home.

I got to enjoy a bit of my inheritance this week too as they began putting in the new windows for our home. Our view, it's back.
We are now down to 3 pigs. The big one went to the meat processing facility on Friday. Being as this was our first time finishing a hog and that it had been a long time ago when Mark was involved in swine, we were having a hard time guessing his weight. This particular pig did not gentle, so we couldn't take the appropriate girth and length measurements to calculate weight. Ideally we wanted him between 220 and 250 pounds. Mark guessed he was 235, I guessed 205. Mark guessed the exact weight! I guess he still has a good eye, or he just got lucky, but either way it turned out just right. We are excited to get some meat back, so we can see if there is really a significant difference in taste with heritage hogs. We will keep you posted.
Lots of wild flowers blooming now and these are just ones at or house's elevation or higher. I didn't make it down the hill this week. I bet I would find a lot more down slope.
